Executive Chef Jennifer Town
General Manager Allen Canarutto
Allen Canarutto brings more than 30 years of hospitality and restaurant experience to Purple Palm as its General Manager. Allen’s career began as a teenager, working at a local restaurant before participating in a life-changing hospitality training program as a college student at the Grand Concourse in Pittsburg. After working at the renowned Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Center for nearly a decade, the East Coast native opted for a change in lifestyle, relocating to Palm Springs, his home now for more than 20 years. Allen takes special pride in the camaraderie amongst the entire restaurant staff as well as Purple Palm’s one-of-a-kind cuisine and beautiful, historic location. He points to the well-balanced, awe-inspiring craft cocktails on the Libations Menu as some of his must-try items.
